Recognizing National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, requires us to reflect openly and honestly on the reality of Canada’s colonial past and present. As we honour the Survivors of residential schools, mourn the children who never returned home, and grieve for the devastating impact on their families and communities, we invite you to join us in committing to concrete steps and actions in support of true reconciliation. To help us reflect upon and commemorate the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, we have included below a list of courses, webinars and events offered by WCM’s sponsor and partner firms.
